Musings about Baseball and Other Stuff
Welcome to the all-new BaseballTrips.net!
Well, not really all new. It’s mostly the same content from the old site, copied and pasted over to this nicer, more professional-looking (and much easier to edit) home. Except that, due to a malfunctioning external hard drive, I’d been unable to make any changes to the old site since 2011. I finally got off my duff and did something about that, and here we are. I hope you like the new look.
As you navigate through the site, you’ll notice that many of the pages document when we visited a particular venue and little else. We plan to remedy that. We’ll dig up old photos, write some new comments about our experiences, and little by little, you’ll start seeing a lot more content here. Please bear with us; it’ll be a slow and gradual process. But we hope you’ll pop in every now and then to see what’s new.
Those of you who remember the old site may recall that I kept a blog over there too. While setting up this new site, I meticulously copied every entry and re-posted them here, one by one. An instant archive, if you will. Then, when I finally shut off the old site and transferred the domain here, all of those entries somehow vanished in the process. And stupid me didn’t save copies elsewhere. So, unless I’m somehow able to resurrect that aforementioned dead hard drive, it’s all lost. I was pissed off about that for about a minute, but then figured all I can do now is make a new start. It’s a new site with a new look and a new blog -- a blank slate. I hope to make the most of it.
My past track record, blogging wise, included several short bursts of enthusiasm in between long periods of inactivity. I’m not going to pretend I’ll be here every day forever, but hopefully this time around I’ll put in the effort a little more consistently. And a bit of feedback and comments from you, dear readers (if I have any) will help me stay engaged. Thanks in advance.
Spring is here, the Cubs are the reigning World Series Champions, and I’m finally rebooting BaseballTrips.net. Life is good. See you at the ballpark!
